    Target netter and bander – northern Minnesota

    • Employer: Natural Resources Research Institute at the University of Minnesota Duluth
      Location: Roosevelt, MN
      Country: United States
      Last Date to Apply: 02/21/2020
      Open Until Filled: Yes

    Description: A target netter and bander is sought from mid-May to late July (end date flexible) to assist on a research project in northern Minnesota. This individual will target net adult female birds and deploy transmitters on both adults and fledglings. The focal species for this project are Connecticut Warbler and Boreal Chickadee. When target netting is not required, this position will assist with other project duties (e.g. nest searching and monitoring, radio telemetry, vegetation surveys).

    Technician will be expected to work six days/week during the height of the season and five days/week at the beginning and end. Salary is ~$2000/month. Housing and work vehicle provided. Technicians are expected to provide binoculars, rubber knee boots, and rain gear. A personal vehicle is not required, but will be useful for days off and after-hours transportation. Position will be based in Roosevelt, MN.

    If interested in applying for this position, please provide (in ONE document) a cover letter that details relevant experience and your interest in the position, resume, and three references to Dr. Alexis Grinde at nrribirdlab AT gmail.com. Please include your last name and “Target Netter” in the subject line. Application deadline is February 21, 2020. Applications will be considered as they are received so we strongly encourage interested individuals to apply promptly.

    Qualifications: Experience with transmitter attachment and target netting, especially female passerines during the breeding season, is highly desired for this position. Successful applicants must be comfortable working and navigating independently off-road (i.e. bushwhacking) and be able to withstand wet, cold, and occasionally hot conditions with constant exposure to extreme numbers of biting insects. A valid U.S. driver’s license is required. Any offer of employment is contingent upon the successful completion of a background check. Our presumption is that prospective employees are eligible to work in Minnesota and the United States in the summer of 2020. Criminal convictions do not automatically disqualify finalists from employment. The University of Minnesota is an Equal Opportunity Educator and Employer. Veterans and individuals from underrepresented groups are encouraged to apply.
